Picked up a couple of pairs of shoes and a waistcoat for Chris, two vintage hats for me:
I see some serious Carmen Miranda fun with this one. And geez, it was only a dollar. (!)
But the best, best, BEST find was this pair of panniers. I even got to meet the costumer who made them and found out that the actress who wore them came through a narrow doorway on stage and let them snap down in a big woosh for a big entrance. Considering that they are 4 feet wide that must have made quite an impression! (And they are really akward to try and photograph by yourself, let me tell you.)
Check out the hardware on these puppies! The frame is aluminum, they don't weigh much at all.
Oh yes, there will be dresses...
We topped off our triumphant shopping excursion with lunch and gelato, definitely not a bad start to the weekend. I think all Fridays should begin this way. Mondays too.
The Berkeley Rep warehouse sale continues tomorrow. More details here
